Arise... Lord Prescott of.......!"

#1
John Prescott is expected to be handed a peerage in one of the final acts of the outgoing Labour government.

The former Deputy Prime Minister, who became a national laughing stock after his affair with a secretary, is one of a string of party loyalists likely to be included in Gordon Brown's resignation honours list.

Others included on a draft list drawn up by Mr Brown include the former Cabinet ministers Ruth Kelly and Des Browne, and Mr Brown's long-suffering former aide Sue Nye, whom he blamed for the 'bigot' affair because she introduced him to Rochdale pensioner Gillian Duffy.

The former Prime Minister is also considering whether to reward spin doctor Alastair Campbell, who set aside his rows with Mr Brown to become a key aide in the months running up to the election.

This would be 'Lord' Prescott who has spent decades sneering at 'the toffs' in the House of Lords? 8O
I saw an interview up here where this was put to him
He said his wife wanted it so she could be called Lady Prescott

So that makes it ok then

That she will never be. You can put a pig in a house and call it a human being - but it is still a porker!

Edited to add - what a farce. Cameron should get somebody decent to dig the place out with a G1098 shovel :evil:

Well there goes the ermine population of the UK. Has anyone informed the RSPCA?

As Brown was won't to wear business suits to formal ocassions, and Michael Foot had his 'donkey' jacket pressed and ironed for Remembrance Day services, perhaps JP could keep to the theme and pitch up 'sans cullottes'.

Actually, I'd be quite delighted to see TwoJags take the ermine. That would mark the final selling-out of the socialist, working-class, principles he once claimed to hold so dear. Remember how his little piggy face used to contort with hatred at the "toffs" during the fox-hunting debates?

All for nothing, John - you're a "toff" yourself now.

Not really an issue. It'll be a life peerage. There's likely to be a clear-out of the Lords soon. He'll barely have time to warm up the seat before he's out.

Anyway, considering that most of the Lords are descended from violent robber Barons, or illegitimate offspring of Royalty, it's entirely in keeping to adding another right royal, thuggish, thieving bas***d to their ranks.

I think a break in convention is called for - it would be nice to see the Condems veto Brown's list of nominations. And whilst they're at it, de-frock that snake Mandlebum. Fcuking charletans the lot of 'em.
